There are several types of experiences available here. I took advantage of two of them: the beach ride and lessons. The Equestrian Center and the people working there are wonderful. Beach ride: unlike other experiences where the horses go into the surf to the riders' knees, this is a true swim experience. I found it exhilarating and unlike any other... More

We thought the conditions of the facility and the care of the horses were phenomenal. We would do it again next year for sure.

Not cheap... Cost 100$ for approx one and a half hours. A short scenic ride to the beautiful half moon and along to a beach to swim with your horse! Swimming bare back with your horse! Excellent

I selected this place after reading many favorable reviews. We had an amazing experience from start to finish. Got picked up at the resort and had no waiting time. We paid, got fitted for our helmets, and we were off! Our guide was very friendly and informative. Take a waterproof camera...he even got underwater footage of the horses swimming. It... More

My family and I went on the beach ride for my daughter's birthday. She reports it was awesome and better than she could have imagined. The stable was well kept and the staff was professional and courteous. Our guides were amazing with my children 8&10. Although they are experienced riders, the kids got nervous when the horses started to swim.... More

If you do the beach ride, you get to SWIM with the horses. Yes, actually swim (unlike other places where you go leg deep)! You hold onto your horses mane, fighting with the waves, until the guide says, "Tail-ride!" Then you let go of the mane, back-up until you're off the horse, and grab onto its tail. The horse is...

We booked a private swim with the horses in September 2014. The reviews were great for Half Moon and it also was the only place that seemed to allow you to actually swim with the horses. So we went and were not disappointed. Trina was fabulous at emailing us right away and answering all our questions and very warm and... More
